Who should create an Index?
There are many software programs available that allow an author to create an index for their book. However, it is not advised that the author do such because they are not subject matter experts and often do not have the knowledge of the terminology needed to include in the index. Authors often overlook important terms and content and fail to effectively use cross-referencing, headings, and sub-headings. A poorly constructed index devalues a book, so it is best left for the experts to generate.
Does every book need an index?
No. Fiction books don’t require an index and would create confusion for readers. The opposite is true for nonfiction books. When an index is not provided for nonfiction books, readers balk because they cannot easily find terms or subject matter. Readers complain of a lack of an index in nonfiction books and will often not purchase one if an index is not included in the back matter of your book. Indexing also works in kindle format books.
Why is an effective index necessary?
An effective index is necessary to increase the usability of a book. Readers purchase nonfiction books, for the most part, to learn from the content. When they can’t find a topic or desire to cross-reference a term and an index has not been included, research by the National Association of Librarians revealed that readers usually donate the book or put it away and don’t use it that is how important a well-constructed index is to a book.
